Warner's Mad Max: Fury Road took in $2.21 million on Thursday to remain in first place at the daily box office. The critically acclaimed action film starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron was down 5 percent from Wednesday and down a solid 40.5 percent from last Thursday. Mad Max: Fury Road placed in third for the week with $38.86 million. That represented a 39 percent decline from the film's opening weekend performance and brings the film's two-week total to $102.29 million. Mad Max: Fury Road will obviously fall out of first place today with the debut of fellow Warner Bros. release San Andreas.
Pitch Perfect 2 held steady in second place with $2.03 million. Universal's successful musical comedy sequel starring Anna Kendrick was down a slim 2 percent from Wednesday and down percent 48 from last Thursday. Pitch Perfect 2 placed in second for the week with $45.12 million. The film was down a significant, but reasonable, 48 percent from its opening week performance and has grossed a stronger than expected $132.699 million through two weeks of release.
Disney's Tomorrowland continued to claim third place with $1.83 million. The Brad Bird directed sci-fi film starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson was down a concerning 7 percent from Wednesday. Tomorrowland led the weekly box office with a seven-day start of $49.39 million. While that was on the lower end of expectations, it also represented an underwhelming start with the film's large price tag in mind. Tomorrowland is running 4 percent behind the $51.35 million seven-day start of 2011's Super 8.
Avengers: Age of Ultron remained in fourth place with $1.40 million. The blockbuster superhero sequel from Disney and Marvel was down 2 percent from Wednesday and down 40 percent from last Thursday. Avengers: Age of Ultron finished in fourth for the week with $32.98 million. The film was down a very solid 34 percent from the previous frame and has grossed a massive $416.15 million through four weeks.
Poltergeist rounded out its first week of release with a fifth place take of $1.11 million. The PG-13 rated horror remake from Fox and MGM fell a sharp 11 percent from Wednesday. Poltergeist placed in fifth for the week with a seven-day start of $30.47 million. That was in line with the film's wide ranging expectations and was 5 percent below the $32.04 million seven-day launch of 2013's Evil Dead.
